MARTA boots up new Web site


On Monday, the Metropolitan Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority (MARTA) launched a revamped Web site. Accessible at, the site now features user-friendly tools, streamlined content and a more accessible format, including real-time service alerts and up-to-date system information.

The Web site is “designed with our customers first in mind,” said MARTA General Manager and Chief Executive Officer Beverly Scott in a prepared statement. “In the development phase, we worked with customers and employees to learn what information was most important to them and how we could make the site more convenient to use.”

Visitors can access the new site through a banner on the former Web site, which will remain online through the launch’s first phase. MARTA will continue to seek feedback on the new site while the agency fine-tunes content and functionality.
